There are many Shades of Goth. Through the cover of night, there came a cloven gleam, like a tongue of darkened flame to flicker in me. Whether your shade of Goth is somber old school, hard edge industrial, synthpop or 80s, the Descent crew invites you to dance with us through the myriad facets of darkwave music. Join us for an evening that explores the shadows as we march into our 11th year of bringing Vancouver the best in new and classic alternative music.
Vancouver Descent boasts an exclusively non-existent dress code. “Why?” you ask. Well, it’s simple: We want everyone who comes to our events to be comfortable. New people entering the scene, or just checking it out, may not have figured out their style. So you may be wondering what is acceptable. Jeans and a t-shirt? No problem. Full out Goth? Totally AWESOME. Punk kid? Rock god? Sk8tr girl? Great! Sweet! Wicked! Feel like going all out in some jaw dropping ensemble? You’re totally welcome to. Come how you want to but we are strongly encouraging everyone to dress up in their favorite Gothic style.
